La tercera del condicional del inglés
|Condición: Past Perfect||Resultado: would + participio|
|If you had been here,
If you hadn't been ill,
|you would have enjoyed the meal

En este condicional la hipótesis es imposible, pues se refiere al pasado y, por tanto, ya no puede realizarse.

She wouldn't have b een upset yesterday if he had told her the truth (pero como no le dijo la verdad, se enfadó)
En lugar de would have podemos emplear might have o could have, con lo que se modifica ligeramente el sentido.

Nota: tanto had como would pueden abreviarse en 'd.
